This plugin allows you to automatically reschedule a build after a build failure.
This can be useful in several cases, including:

  • The build is dependent upon external resources, that were temporarily unavailable (DB down, network down, website down, etc).
  • Users want continuous emails sent out until the build is fixed, in order to prompt people into action.


Simply install the plugin, and then check the Post-Build action "Retry build after failure" on your project's configuration page.

If the build fails, it will be rescheduled to run again in five minutes. For each consecutive unsuccessful build, the waiting time is extended by five minutes. The waiting time is capped at one hour, so after ~12 failing builds in a row, a new build will only be rescheduled once per hour.

The following options are also available:

  • Rerun build for unstable builds as well as failures
  • Only rebuild the job if the build's log output contains a given regular expression
